Final Harvests

Most likely the last of the bell peppers and almost the last of the jalapenos. There are a few more out there about half way grown. If frost keeps holding out, they still have a chance.The final container potatoes of the season.The Caroline Raspberries are just putting out another large flush of berries. Some should be ripening tomorrow. There are tons on the plants, but I'm not sure if they'll have enough time to ripen. I think October 15th is pretty close to our average first frost date around here, so they are really pushing it. It'll be nice to get one more sweet treat from the garden before the real cold sets in.


  1. Hi Kim,

    I hope you're having an awesome week! I thought you might like this infographic I helped build about the health, mental, and financial benefits of gardening (

    If you think your readers would like it too, please feel free to use it on Kim's Flower, Fruit, and Vegetable Garden blog. There's code at the bottom of our post that makes it super easy to post on your blog. It's all free (of course). If you have any questions about posting it, let me know and I'll try to help.

    I don't know where else to contact you so I just posted a comment here. :)

  2. Your harvest looks great! My gardens stopped producing a while ago. Next year I plan to try to extend my gardens.


  3. I have been thinking about next year's garden as well. I have been sketching out new layouts. Trying to figure out what to move, keep, eliminate, add more of, or limit. Although I miss spending time in the garden, I still have fun planning for the next season. Catalogs have already started arriving!
